I recently got the new September J.Crew catalogue in the mail & I spent the afternoon drooling over the scarves, debating over the pricetags when my guy said "err Amanda, you knit, knit yourself a damn scarf".
I'm thinking about making either one of these scarves
I'm wondering if these are the sort of scarves that need to be knit in the round because of all the instarsia, like the stripes or the argyle, or if it's something that can be made cute by giving it a nice backing. If you knit a scarf in the round, do the edges still curl? Is that what you would stitch together?
Also, the one with the longer stripes, I read that you can use a really long circ and cast on a bunch and knit it width wise, rather than length (did that make sense).
Any tips on making a simple scarf? I feel so silly asking this, so I posted here rather than any of my other knitting groups, who are some times snarky
Also, does anyone know of a neat argyle chart?
Ok, I'm done : D
Thanks for indulging me!
